Dr. Ali bin Samih Al-Marri, president of Qatar National Human Rights Committee, met at the Committee’s headquarters with the Parliamentary investigation Committee of the British Parliament, headed by Mr. Graham Morris. Dr. Al-Marri discussed during the meeting a detailed explanation of the human rights violations caused by the blockade imposed on Qatar. While the Parliamentary investigation Committee held a press conference at the headquarters of NHRC after meeting with Dr. Al Marri. The British Parliamentary Committee, mandated by the British Parliament to investigate the violations resulting of the blockade imposed on the state of Qatar, called for an immediate lifting of the blockade, which they consider illegal and violating all international and humanitarian conventions and laws. Mr. Morse pointed out that he had met with a number of officials of the National Committee, including Dr. Ali bin Samih Al-Marri, and many of the victims of the blockade; he added that said that the blockade violates the basic human rights that should be respected rather than violated. He pointed out that there are international obligations on the countries to abide by and stressed that it is in everyone’s interest to resolve the current Gulf crisis urgently. The head of the British Parliamentary Committee stated that the committee shall present the outcomes of their visit to Qatar to the British Parliament, and will hold meetings with members of Parliament, as well as address the European Union in this regard. Mr. Morse said at the press conference that the committee met with officials of the British Embassy in Qatar, who said they supported the efforts to lift the blockade, which is the position of the British government, and support the mediation conducted by His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, to end the crisis. He expressed the delegation’s readiness to visit the countries of the blockade upon receiving an invitation. He called for a quick political solution to the crisis and not to involve citizens in such political and diplomatic disputes.
